Fat Wood...made better!
Wax Wood Stick is made to mimic naturally occurring "fat wood", which is wood impregnated with extra resin when a tree attempts to repair damage or dies. But it is not enough to just mimic fat wood, because fat wood has some downsides that could be improved. First of all, it's not always easy to find...especially if you don't know what to look for. Once you do actually find it, you have to process it into pieces that are a useable size...which is a messy, sticky undertaking to say the least. Once you've done that, storing it for travel is a challenge as well since it doesn't come in a standard size or shape. You also have to factor in the sticky mess that you don't want to put into your favorite pack.
Wax Wood Stick is not only easier to light than natural fat wood...it's conveniently sized for your pack or fire kit. It's soft enough to be easily processed, but has no sticky residue to contend with. It's dry, easy to pack and super easy to use.
